09 Jul How durable are porcelain veneers?
Do you want to improve your smile with cosmetic dentistry? Do you want to conceal or correct permanent stains and misaligned teeth? If you have multiple cosmetic problem areas, porcelain veneers might be the best option for you to achieve the smile of your dreams.
A cosmetically flawed smile can greatly affect your self-esteem. Many patients with noticeable imperfections are very self-conscious about their appearance and even avoid social situations because they are embarrassed about their teeth. Fortunately, veneers conceal every imaginable imperfection without looking unnatural. Since each veneer is handcrafted from porcelain, these cosmetic enhancements can last for decades with proper care.
Can you eat normal foods with veneers?
Patients with veneers can eat any food with ease. This is because veneers are permanently cemented to the front of teeth. Patients who have veneers will clean their teeth as normal with regular brushing and flossing.
How can porcelain veneers improve my smile?
Razor thin pieces of porcelain are crafted by hand in dental laboratories to very precise specifications. Each veneer is shaped and sized to fit over a specific tooth. This means that once a veneer is bonded to the teeth, it will perfectly enhance a patient’s appearance by concealing a stained, misshapen, or misaligned tooth. Once all veneers are placed, patients will enjoy a straight and uniform smile that is a beautiful shade of white.
Who should receive veneers?
Our dentist offers a few different types of cosmetic procedures including teeth whitening and white restorations. Veneers are typically reserved for patients who suffer with different types of smile flaws.
